Product Description:

Being trained by the Assassins' Guild in Ankh-Morpork did not fit Teppic for the task assigned to him by fate. He inherited the throne of the desert kingdom of Djelibeybi rather earlier than expected, but that was only the beginning of his problems.

Review:

'Like Dickens, much of Pratchett's appeal lies in his humanism, both in a sentimental regard for his characters' good fortune, and in that his writing is generous-spirited and inclusive' ( Guardian)

'As funny as Wodehouse and as witty as Waugh' ( Independent)

'Imagine a collision between Jonathan Swift at his most scatologically-minded and J.R.R. Tolkien on speed' ( Daily Telegraph)

'The best kind of parody - funny and smart and still a good story' ( Mail on Sunday)

Pyramids is the seventh book in the award-winning comic fantasy Discworld series by Terry Pratchett. In Pyramids, you ll discover the tale of Teppic, a student at the Assassin s Guild of Ankh-Morpok and prince of the tiny kingdom of Djelibeybi, thrust into the role of pharaoh after his father s sudden death. It s bad enough being new on the job, but Teppic hasn t a clue as to what a pharaoh is supposed to do. First, there s the monumental task of building a suitable resting place for Dad -- a pyramid to end all pyramids. Then there are the myriad administrative duties, such as dealing with mad priests, sacred crocodiles, and marching mummies. And to top it all off, the adolescent pharaoh discovers deceit, betrayal--not to mention a headstrong handmaiden--at the heart of his realm. Sometimes being a god is no fun at all.
